  • Very clean, quiet beach with a few waves. The water is beautiful. A beach umbrella and two chairs will cost you $ 20 us if you want. I really liked.

  • Visit Antigua through a cruise. We spent the morning on this beach. Little infrastructure. We rented in a restaurant, beach umbrella ($ 10) and Chair ($ 5 per unit). Beautiful sea, good for dipping. Warning for locomotion by then. Cost of 12 dollars to go and 12 dollars more to return. We took a taxi belonging to the city. Anyway, after we combine the return to port, the driver didn't show up on time combined didn't answer the calls on his cell phone. So don't pay there and around. Pay for only the areas where you have traveled.

  • My husband and I came to this beach as part of a snorkeling excursion. Overall good beach. Mostly clean, and the water is cool which is good for a hot day. There was a small dip when you walk into the water so watch out for that. There's neither facilities nor benches on this beach so bring a towel to sit on. Also, there's a group of people that ride horses to a portion of this beach (as an excursion) so watch out for horse poop!
  • An incredible and pristine beach. The color of the turquoise blue water and few people.

Where to stay in St. John's

The popularity of St. John's means you can choose from a decent selection of accommodations in town. Most consist of budget and mid-range hotels lining the bay--you can expect complimentary breakfast and free parking at humble but comfortable lodgings. Look a few streets back from the water, around VC Bird Monument, for more affordable options.
